“Always Original.” At KFC, we consider that a mantra of sorts. We’ve got our world-famous Original Recipe chicken, our original founder, Colonel Harland Sanders, and our original restaurants. Today, we’ll take a trip around the world to highlight some of our most unique restaurants.
This KFC has its own name… And its own radio station… And its own 56-foot-tall giant steel chicken that pilots use as a reference point when landing at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The next time you’re in Marietta, Georgia, be sure to stop by to enjoy a bucket on the nearly 1,200 square-foot patio or grab some merchandise from the attached gift shop (we’d recommend both).
Steel chickens aren’t the only thing we do big. This KFC features a double drive-thru that serves up to 200 cars per hour, a gigantic 400-seat outdoor patio, and room for 280 more guests inside. Totaling more than 5,500 square feet, this KFC at the National Railway Station’s south terminal is one stop you don’t want to miss.
Speaking of drive-thrus, head Down Under for the newest way to grab a bucket and go. This restaurant in Newcastle, New South Wales, allows you to order online in advance, pull up to one of the stalls, enter the four-digit code you received, and get your fried chicken in record time. There are also two lanes for traditional drive-thru ordering, but what’s the fun in that?
How about a meal with a view? This KFC in Giza, Egypt, may not look unique as you walk through its doors, but turn around and you’re greeted with history. Dine on the third-floor balcony, where you can look out over the Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza while enjoying some Original Recipe goodness. This is how the pharaohs did it, right?
That’s just a few of our unique restaurants. With nearly 25,000 KFCs in 150 countries around the world, you’re sure to find an original restaurant to pick up a bucket near you or on your next journey.
